Loss of Johnson
More than twenty of the men that
survived the cut were out in suits
yesterday afternoon and went through
the regular fielding and batting prac-
tice, in Waterman gymnasium.
Scheidler, Wescott, Gariepy, Ruz-
icka, and Glenn were used by Coach
Lundgren in the box, while Heidler,
Morrison, and Mraz caught them. A
big improvement in the batting has
been shown by the whole squad. The
men are just beginning to get their
eyes on the ball and are banging out
everything that is offered up to them.
The pitchers are not putting any-
thing on the bafl as yet, however, and
are relying on their fast ball to give
the stick men some. practice and per-
haps this is where the secret of the
heavy hitting lies.
In the fielding end of the workouts,
the men have been handling the ball
in good shape on the hard smooth
floor of the gymnasium, but under the
circumstances it is hard to judge the
squad's ability. As soon as the men
get outside and working on the dirt
diamond, some difference will appear
in the handling of grounders, and
then, and only then, will it be possible
to make any predictions as to the
fielding ability of the infielders and
There will be no practice this after-
noon according to Coach Lundgren.
The men have been working hard
throughout the week and they are to
be given a rest.
Johnson, Michigan's indomitable
track star, is coming into his own. At
least, if the jealousy of other colleges
is indicative of one's prowess, he is
getting his reward.
In a recent issue of the Cardinal,
the paper published at the Univ'ersity
of Wisconsin,.there was a long article
bewailing the fact that Wisconsin, so
the story runs, might easily have had
this brilliant performer instead of
Michigan. All the blame for this mis-
fortune is placed upon the Conference
rule which prohibits a member of any
college department to even write a
letter to a prospective athlete. The
article goes on to say that Wisconsin
is the only school which strictly ad-
heres to this ruling, and because of
this loses many a promising young
To judge from this article the Mich-
igan track team, and especially John-
son, are attracting the attention of
the other western universities. 14 is
to be hoped that their showing dur-
ing the remainder of the season will
merit- this attention, and that the
Wolverines will make their return to
the Conference a signal for a success-I

Students at the University of Min-

to be the most unique club of its
kind in any university or college in
the world. This is a club for stu-

serv'ed terms in prison. Already it
contains two members from the facul-

of time which hd has looked out from
behind prison bars, has been elected
Prof. Jules Frelin of the romance
language department, is the honorary
president of the club. He served his
term as a requisite for membership
in 1888, when he was confined for
four weeks in a French military pris-
on for failure to serve in the French
army. This occurred in Alcase-.Lor-

The other faculty man who has been
admitted to the unique organization is
W. N. Sternburn, secretary of the

of the Root mission to Russia. Being
a Russian, he was cast into prison

plied to Professor Frelin.
